Grenada is a place of warm and friendly charm, picture-perfect white beaches, and a great choice of luxurious hotels and boutique boltholes. Plus, there's much to explore including hot springs, scented markets, spice plantations, volcanic crater lakes, the striking Seven Sisters Falls, and an intriguing underwater paradise for divers to discover. Grenada may only be the size of the Isle of Wight, but it packs a lot in!
I am delighted Grenada is now on the Green List for travel, meaning no self-isolation on your return to the UK.
Why I Love Grenada...
Grand Anse Beach is simply stunning, with over two miles of pristine white sands. Stay at one of our hotels here and you'll find it hard to drag yourself away.
For divers, there are over 50 spots of interesting underwater discoveries to be made with coral reefs, shipwrecks, and the world’s first underwater sculpture park.
Recently named the world's first "Culinary Capital" with its range of spices, fresh seafood, handcrafted chocolate, and rums.
The Natural Environment
Away from the beach, you can hike Grand Etang National Park, enjoy the rainforest and Seven Sisters Falls or take a day trip to sister island, Carriacou.
Grenada has long been one of my most favourite Caribbean islands I have visited, the people are lovely, so welcoming, along with the food which is just fabulous.
The island tends to attack the traveller who has tried a lot of the other islands, so experienced travellers, you do not tend to get large groups, rowdy family groups either.
I have added a few of the most favourite resorts below, I have been fortunate to stay at over the years I have been travelling.
If you want the beaches and the ocean views, but you’re also a passionate foodie who loves to try new flavours, cinnamon-scented Grenada could well be the place for you. Twelve degrees north of the equator, this is a sugar and spice island on which to spend lazy days in a hammock sipping on a nutmeg-infused rum punch. Life here is mellow, unrushed and fragrantly seasoned.
Less developed than many of the other Caribbean islands, Grenada bewitches with low rise boutique hotels, laid-back living and a lush rainforest interior that opens out onto beautiful white beaches and the indigo waters of the Atlantic and the Caribbean. It’s home to heady hot springs, vividly scented markets, spice plantations, volcanic crater lakes and the striking Seven Sisters Falls.
